Save Our Seats
The Save Our Seats campaign was launched at a public meeting of some 300 fans held in Newcastle on Thursday, October 14th 2009.
The meeting had been organised by the Newcastle United Supporters’ Association (NUSA), and backed by the fanzines Talk of the Tyne, The Mag and True Faith. Volunteers came together to set up a campaign group consisting of a cross-section of Newcastle United fans.
The problem
In early October, Newcastle United wrote to 4,000 season ticket holders in the Milburn and Leazes stands informing them that their seats made up areas now to be designated corporate hospitality areas, with effect from the beginning of next season.
To remain in their current seats would mean price increases from £865 to £1350 (Milburn stand), or from £673 to £995 (Leazes stand). The alternative offered was relocation to other parts of the ground, particularly to the new upper tiers of the two affected stands, currently under construction. The correspondence distributed by the club contained a number of errors and contradictions, making already difficult choices virtually impossible.
The club allowed approximately three weeks, to a deadline of 29th October, for a decision to be made.
The announcement by the club proved extremely unpopular among season ticket holders affected. The plan was greeted with even greater dismay by the substantial proportion of the affected fans who had previously purchased bonds from the club at a cost of £500, in the belief (fostered by the accompanying advertising material) that these bonds guaranteed the holder’s personal seat in the stadium for ten years.
